Hm, interesting. Infiniti is withdrawing from Europe. First step in contraction of both brands to refocus on US? China never liked the styling of angular American brands (i.e. Caddy) so it's not surprising. What is surprising is that Honda Japan are willing to cede the new frontier for now, at least until they figure out why anyone in China would buy an Acura. Meanwhile, Genesis is planning to launch in China provided they find a manufacturing partner.

How many Acuras do they currently sell in China?

Does this mean future MDX, RDX, etc. will be sold by Dongfeng Honda or Guangqi Honda, perhaps restyled to fit domestic tastes? (i.e. lots of chrome, organic lines)

Look up and see how many Volkswagen Group cars they sell in China, badged as German or Chinese.

https://www.volkswagenag.com/en/news/2019/01/VW_China_deliveries_2018.html

Volkswagen Group sold 4.21million vehicles in China in 2018, of which only 196,300 were imported.

Read it and hang your heads in shame Honda honchos, you had an opportunity to disassociate the Acura brand from it's Japanese roots, but ..........

Not good, Acura cannot survive just being an American brand if its to get its own platform. The sales are not there. More Honda plus..........not that its a bad thing.

Explains the changes in the other thread at Acura.

Honda pulling Acura from China.
